By enriching the environment in which our Kindergarten students study inwith play materials such as toys and games, we hope to improve intelligence, spark creative thinking, and improve communication, vocabulary, and language skills forthem to build upon in their later years.
Our classrooms provide a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere where children are motivated to learn. Children are provided with a variety of play areas for learning and development, such as a building blocks space, where children develop numeracy and decision–making skills through the use of building blocks, a gym where children practice balance and coordination, and an art space where children expand their creativity and increase their self–esteem.
Day–to–day activities that children participate in are built around encouraging children to learn to take turns and share materials, develop new friendships, become self–reliant, cooperate with others, increase attention span, and develop self–esteem.
